#2: Dani Mancini, founder of Scribly.io:

We chatted with with Dani, founder of Scribly.io ($37K/month). In our interview, Dani says:

I was terrified, but also fired up. I had zero experience of anything to do with being self-employed, I had literally never sent a manual invoice the day that I quit my job. I don't even think I had a business bank account by that point.

Additionally:

I think a big learning for me is to accept that there’s only so much I can do. I’m not the most patient person in the world, and learning to be ok with a slower pace than I might like has been a challenge for sure.

Further:

Find something you love, and then just take a leap of faith. It might go wrong, sure. But chances are it won’t.
